The Bengals are just too banged up on offense, as both Dalton and Green will miss the game against the Raiders on Sunday. Oakland, on the other hand, are playing their best football of the young season, and were pretty fired up in the locker room after their huge victory against a superior Pittsburgh Steelers team in Week 14.
Carr should have no issues moving the ball against the Bengals defense, which had a couple of their stars on the shelf this past week, including Burfict. Oakland may not have the best defense in the league, but their young guys are playing much better as of late, and they should be able to contain an offense led by Jeff Driskel.
I actually like the Raiders to go East and come up with the victory on Sunday, running their record to 4-10 on the season. Sure, it could have a negative effect on their draft status next April, but this young team needs to feel what it is like to win games at the NFL level, and they will be better off because of it in the long run.
